Happy August. It's amazing that it's August already. Thanks to Mary for sponsoring the Smalls SAL. I had a crazy start to last month and by the time I got online, the June link had closed so I'm happy to make the July link.
I did a start a day this month for Christmas in July and managed to finish a few of them.
Currently, I have enough finished pieces to make 30 Christmas cards with another 15 or so started.
I also got Joe's kitchen framed. I stopped at Michael's, where I've always had gotten my pieces framed. They usually do a fantastic job. Not this time. After spending a hour with the young man in the frame shop, I finally took my piece and left. It was painfully obvious he didn't know what he was doing and there was no way I was leaving my work in his hands. I went to Hobby Lobby and had a wonderful experience. They did a great job and will get all of my future framing experience.
Year to date I am at 76 finishes out of 126 starts and will spend most of the next few months finishing the rest of my Christmas cards.
